Jane’s Doodles cards

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hey friends. I hope that you are doing OK in these unprecedented times. Schools haven’t officially closed in Australia, but many parents are choosing to keep their kids at home, so even though I am still going to school each day, all teaching has gone on-line! What a steep learning curve that has been over the past 2 weeks! I am now recording video lessons and managing an online class (with about 8 students still remaining at school!) So glad the Easter holidays are just around the corner!

Anyway, today I have some Jane’s Doodles projects to share with you from the past month. I’ll start with today’s card which is bright and happy one using the WildFlowers stamp set and the All Occasions sentiment stamp set.

I stamped the floral cluster in my stamping press and then rotated it 180 degrees and stamped again. Coloured it with Copics and added some lines with a marker to create a border. The sentiment is white heat embossed onto some black card stock and I added a touch of white gel pen to some flowers.

Next up are some older projects that I just haven’t got around to sharing until now. This tag was made with the Suzi’s Easter stamp set.

And this cute birthday card was made with the Unicorn and Magical stamp sets.

Thanks for stopping by. Email me if you want to know any additional information about my cards.

FREE SHIPPING: Jane has free worldwide shipping at the moment, so why not take advantage of that have a browse in the shop. Head here to view all of Jane’s stamps.

Stay safe and craft on! Until next time.

Thank you – Penny Black ‘Secret Garden’ Inspiration #1

Hi friends. I hope that things aren’t too chaotic in your neck of the woods! The good thing about our wonderful online community of card makers is that we can continue to make, share, enjoy and uphold each other online like we have always done!

Today I am sharing a card using Penny Black products from their latest ‘Secret Garden’ release – and what an awesome release it is as well.

I stamped the Penny Black Unforgettable cling stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto some Neenah Solar white card stock. I then went to town and coloured in this beauty using Copic markers – I was actually at the beach a few weeks ago colouring this one.

I wasn’t sure how to mount this onto my card base, so I trimmed around the image, fussing cutting around some of the outer leaves and flower buds. I then mounted this to a dark teal piece of card stock. Before adhereing to the base card, I lightly sponged on some dots using a blue ink and the Oscillations stencil. I reach for this stencil all the time when I want to add some subtle interest to the card base.

I finished off the card by adding a white heat embossed sentiment from the Million Thanks stamp set. I mounted the sentiment with some foam tape.

Thank you – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m popping in quickly today to share a card I made using Jane’s Doodles¬† products. I masked off then stamped the new Wild Flowers stamp onto some Neenah solar white card stock and coloured it with Copic markers. I am having fun experimenting with adding little dots around my images of late – jut to give it some more visual interest.

I then added some thin card stock strips underneath the floral cluster, one of which I stamped the Thank you sentiment from the All Occasions stamp set. To complete the card I added in some white gel pen highlights with a Uniball Signo white gel pen.

Thanks for supporting me and my card making journey. You can always follow me on Instagram @marionvagg if you don’t already.

Jane's Doodle Banner


Hello and welcome to a Jane’s Doodles¬†blog hop where the Design team are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets called Wild Flowers and Wild. You should have arrived from Kaja’s blog. If you get lost along the way, there is a list of blog hop contributors at the end of this post.

Without further ado, here are the two new stamp sets.

Wild Flowers

Wild

For my first card I stamped the large floral arrangement from the Wild Flowers onto some white card stock. The flowers were coloured with Copic markers. I added some light grey shading and dots around the image to add some subtle interest. The sentiment is from the Thankful stamp set.

Next up is a fun card using the Wild set – which I simply love! This set is going to get a good workout from me, as it is perfect for making cards for my kid’s friends!

I stamped all the images straight onto the die cut out panels and then coloured them with Copics. I had fun experimenting with the various green backgrounds and creating different textures. I was trying to break up all the green. The die cut is a MFT die called Stitched collage frame.

Thinking of You – Penny Black ‘Share the Love’ Inspiration #4

Today I am sharing another card using Penny Black products from their latest ‘Share the Love’ release.

Hello! For today’s card I masked off the centre strip with some washi tape. I then stamped some of the Banner Blooms images (stamped off onto scrap paper first, then onto the panel to get a lighter image) in VersaFine Smoky gray ink. Once I had all the images stamped, I went to town painting using Zig Zig Clean Color real brush markers. I scribbled the ink onto an acrylic block then painted the images with a paintbrush/watercolour brush. I painted several layers, drying between each one. I also used the Zig’s direct to paper in some spots. This took me quite some time, but it was rather relaxing. When all the painting was done, I used some Prismacolor pencils to add in the final touches of shading and outlining.

After removing the mask I stamped the sentiment from the Only You stamp set.

I had done some practising on another piece and it was too good to throw out, so I die cut a tag using the Gift Tag creative dies.

I Love You – Penny Black Share the Love Inspiration #1

Hello! I am back sharing a card for Penny Black using some awesome goodies from the latest ‘Share the Love’ release. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, this release has lots of inspiration for that someone special in your life.

I stamped and water coloured the images from the Tenderness stamp set with Zig clean color real water brush pens, then die cut them out using the coordinating cut outs. The banner and sentiment are from the Banner Blooms set. There is a coordinating cut out set for this stamp set as well, but I didn’t use it for this card.

Once I had all the images coloured and cut out, I arranged them onto some textured card stock with 3D mounting tape and then adhered the panel to a teal coloured card base.

I’ll be back really soon with some more inspiration,
